A former Islamic State sex slave who managed to escape from the terror group in 2014 took her plea to Congress, begging them to do something to stop the Islamic State group.
“The USA must act. We must terminate Daesh and all such terror,” Nadia Murad told members of the Senate Homeland Security committee through a translator on Tuesday, according to CNN. “Daesh will not give up their weapons unless we force them to give up their weapons.”
Murad took the opportunity to rip into Obama and other politicians who have done very little to stop ISIS and how thousands are people are dead because of it.
“If a country as strong as your country cannot protect its citizens in Orlando, or in Belgium or in France,” Murad asked, “how come a small minority like us can protect ourselves while we are in the heart of the land where the radicals are?”
This girl is braver than most people in Congress.
Sadly, neither the American people or members of Congress have an answer as to why Obama has refused to do anything to stop the spread of radical Islam.
In reality, there is little any of us can do except wait until November and vote for whoever we think will take action against these terrorists and stop more terror attacks from occurring.
We will never be able to make up for the lives lost because our president chose to sit on the sidelines in the War on Terror.
All we can do is make sure to never elect someone as feckless as Barack Obama again and redouble our efforts to make the world safer.
